    I don't know how much better conditions I can hope for... I just landed a good-paying job with promotion potential, doing what I love (programming), and working from home.  Not sure when I start yet, but I think this'll be the best gig I've ever had!

    No social media sites for me either, unless forums, youtube, google stuff, and IRC are counted in that mix.
     
    Facebook, and all that IMHO are all garbage. Twitter, etc, I dont know really, but this is why we have had IRC for what now ? 20 years ?

    I looked again the picture and there is no need to supply 5V from USB to the SD board.
    Try with FatFs.begin(cs_pin,16);   this will lower the SPI clock 
    Check if your Energia/hardware/msp430/libraries/SPI/utility/usci_spi.cpp  and  Energia/hardware/msp430/cores/msp430/usci_isr_handler.c  files are the same as the ones in github.

    Hi Sirri,
     
    From the pictures I think you are using an SD adapter that have level shifting so it can interface to 5V microcontrollers (like Arduino).
    This will not work, because the MSP430 is a 3.3V device and the voltage levels from the card will be to low.
    Try to connect the card directly using the first method from http://www.43oh.com/2011/02/five-cheap-breadboard-prototyping-tips-and-tricks-list-2/
    ( this is what I used )

    sirri reacted to roadrunner84 in Energia and raspberry pi   
    Why would you connect the launchpad/msp430 via USB serial to the RPi? The GPIO lines of the RPi support TTL level serial. just hook the MSP430 up to those lines directly! If you want to use the USB plug on the launchpad, you'd need to port the drivers from x86 to ARM.

    Hello.  I figured I would share a project I've been working on since I borrowed a lot of code from this forum.  It's a small watch using a g2553 and the same OLED display as "The Terminal".  Thanks bluehash for the breakout, RobG and gwdeveloper for code, and others.

    Would the larger FatFS work on larger MSP430s? Like the F5510, with 4096 KB RAM?

    A small update:
    - all config settings in one file - pffconf.h
    - a soft SPI driver ( shuftIn/shiftOut ) that can be enabled in pffconf.h. It defaults on HW SPI pins, but these can be changed using FatFs.begin(cs_pin, sclk_pin, mosi_pin, miso_pin); . The speed is very low, but it frees 3 pins that can be used as analog inputs or I2C.
    - added a small benchmarking example
     
    Tested on MSP430G2553 and Stellaris Launchpads. A minimal program should work also on MSP430G2452. 
    On fraunchpad the examples compile without errors but I don't have the board to test it.

    sirri reacted to zeke in Learning Python   
    I got a call from a sales droid from Embarcadero today. He wanted me to buy RadStudio XE2. 10% off until the end of the month. I asked him "Where have you been since 2005? C++Builder has been a walking zombie since then."
     
    That got me thinking of the alternatives to their mega dollar programming environment. Python and Qt came to mind.
     
    So, while googling for python gui programming, I stumbled onto Google's python class tonight.
     
    I watched the first video on youtube. I think I'll be watching the rest of them.
     
    I've also put this author on my reading list: Mark Summerfield
     
    I am hoping that I can make interactive programs kinda like this live data monitor only with two way communication.
     
    Anyhow... I'm starting with Google's online Python class.

    I too have a rev 1.4 Launchpad upgraded with an m430g2553 and have created an X jumper for the RXD TXD.  I have tried several of the example sketches in Energia but I am not getting any data back from the Launchpad in the serial console.
     
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    crossing jumpers on the 1.5 would change it in a double loopback, wouldn't it?
    So the MSP430 RX and TX are connected to eachother and the USB RX and TX to eachother as well.
